Q:

router jig templates

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to purchase a completer template for box joints.

I can only provide you with the components for the box joint and not a complete assembly.

The box joint template is part number: 1609443497 and the brackets that you will need 2 of is: 1609443482 and the stiffener is: 1609443503.

You may want to get the standard hardware screws and machine thread bolts from a hardware store instead of ordering them from the source. It will be much cheaper to use standard hardware.

Q:

How to install blades on an old jig saw?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your frustration when the blades keep breaking.

Are the blades breaking as soon as you install them or are you able to get some use out of the blade before it breaks?

This old scroll saw requires 6 inch plain end blades.

This model is a constant tension system unlike the newer style units of today.

If you are using the correct blades and you are loading the tension correctly it should work fine.

If you have not used a scroll saw before, breaking blades is not uncommon. It’s kind of the nature of the beast.

I will give you a link to some blades if you need them. Blades 6 inch plain end .

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update. The tensioned spring for this saw is what pulls the blade back up for the next stroke of the arm to pull it down. The saw drive arm below should not be pushing the blade up; the spring should be returning the blade on the up stroke. When setting the blade have the arm in the down stroke and set the tension on the blade so the spring is not quite at the end of its travel. In this way the spring is pulling the blade up and not counting on the drive to push it up. Perhaps you have a problem in the spring tensioned assembly. When pulling down on the spring and letting it back up there should be free movement with no resistance on the up return travel. Install a piece of a broken blade into the upper blade holder and pull down with a pair of pliers to examine for free movement of the blade return spring. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

You are correct in that the motor did not come with the saw. At that time you would buy the tool and then go to the motor department and pick the size motor you needed for what ever bench top tool you purchased. You may be able to find and manual from and old wood working tool web-site. Sam A.
